  1. Looking for a pair of twin headlamps with backing plates, must be in reasonable to fair condition.

    Capri twin headlamps wanted

    This is my idea, hoping to get it sorted this weekend? I will try to incorporate the (dare i say it....) Marina grille, if not, i will cut the present one down.
  3. Originally i was going for the i4 engine with an mt75 box, but the guy's could not do it, so after wasting my money, i bought a red top and had a guy come over and offer to fit it with the r25/28 box without me selling a kidney or re-mortgaging my house! he also informed me i would not need a space frame. it went in on April 14th 2014............. 3 years later and no patience left, it was taken away this year April 14th, it now has more fabrication and mods done to it in 3 to 4 weeks than in the 3 years it was left in the corner whilst being fed repeated verbal garbage every 3 months. Bike carbs are now the order of the day, prop has been made, coil-overs, Atlas rear end discs calipers LSD etc etc... Bias pedal box, oil cooler etc etc etc.. hoping to be up n running in a couple of months. Tried to upload photo's but gave up! will try again ....... can't seem to upload more than one at a time?

    Vaud Escort 4 door mk2

    junked the microsquirt, visited SBD motorsport, moved the throttle linkage, changed the thermostat sender unit, bled the system, hit the fuel pump with a spanner, fired it up, it rattled a bit, then the oil started to do it's job and it finally runs! just need to make a few minor changes and then there is no excuse for it not to be on the road by the end of February. Best £1500 that ever left my bank account! Big Thanks to Steve of SBD.
  5. Advertising on behalf of a very good friend, very trustworthy, and in Malta! 1970, 2 door mk1, was an 1100cc model originally, pretty solid car, logbook is in his name, correct matching numbers also. No engine or gearbox or propshaft, comes with Compomotive 13 inch wheels, wide outer lip type, also comes with radiator and a dismantled exhaust. it did have a different engine before removal and being put into dry storage and so the radiator panel/section will need attention. To get the car over here, i think (I said THINK) it would cost approx £550 which covers handling, tow & shipping. Will need a clean and some minor cosmetics sorting, but overall... a solid example. Offers invited.
  6. £5,750 no offers.

    what did i end up with? 10 people answered the call, 1 out of the 10 replied and done what was asked, the other 9 didn't bother replying. i now have some xj6/40 twin jag lights complete with surround, wiring and looms. They are due to be posted to me on Monday. I had a guy with a pair of capri lights and backing plates in clacton who couldn't be bothered to get in touch but then again, maybe he is still at work...after 2 days? a guy with the e30 grille sections said and done the same, and everyone else talked the talk, but couldn't walk the walk! It's only for my B2500 truck front, i am going to incorporate a mk1 Marina grille in with the lights. not quite a classic, and not quite a Ford either but thanks for the suggestions.

    Thank you! i will have a look! i am not fussed what type, as long as the rear fixing plate/fixing points are intact, Cheers again.
  9. Any recommendations on a good supplier for a new replacement front rubber surround? one that won't need welding or some pagan ritual to fit!

    Lotus L Block £450 ovno

    Hi, yes, it was, now sold...... cheers.
  12. needs some minor work on the passenger side lower corner, otherwise pretty good condition all round, obviously collection only.
  13. Looking for the 4 door trim, just the doors, no front or rear wings trim required. need 2 strips, do not have to be mint, but straight would be nice.

    MK2 4 Door trim required

    All sorted!!!
  15. History unknown, both turn, I also have a chambered head, and will post that later, regarding the blocks, bores are very good, no gaps or ridges to ride over in a 4x4! collection would be best, Essex area. I may also have a couple of standard flywheels.

    Vaud Escort 4 door mk2

    Home at last! being booked in for the exhaust later this week, looking forward to finally driving with a smile on my face (unless i am parked in a lay-by with the RAC in my rear view!) Got a fantastic quote insurance wise, limited to 5k miles, but everything declared, even down to the bonnet and tyre size! just waiting on the rear seats to be returned from being re-covered, and have to sort the carpet out due to a much bigger tunnel! still unsure of the door cards and the colour 'contrast', but if i get sick of it, i will re-arrange it.
  18. Looking for the push type clips/buttons that secure the rear shelf in place on the mk2 saloon. Also the rear post/pillar covers that are in both rear corners made of plastic, mine are disappearing! not fussed on colour, anyone have a pair??????

    You tube. Great short film

    Nowhere near enough aggression! That was funny! simple, easy to watch, and very enjoyable!
  20. i need the plastic version with the cut out section for the standard fuse box on the mk2 escort, the very last item before it goes to have the ecu fitted!
